Affiliate Funnel Description

Affiliate Funnel is a membership program created and run by internet marketers John Olson and Paul Kinder that allows its members to use tools and resources for promoting their own affiliate and networking marketing programs. Members can concentrate on promoting only AF, but through this, they can build downlines for any other programs they belong to. They can also attract customers for their affiliate products or services, or for their own products or services and earn cash for recruiting paying members.

Affiliate Funnel Detailed Overview

When you join Affiliate Funnel, one of the first things that you do is enter information about the various programs that you belong to so that you can promote them all through this one program. Many other affiliate or networking marketing promotional programs that feature participating programs give you a list of what to join, but AF allows you to make your own list. This is a positive aspect of the program.

Affiliate Funnel does suggest traffic exchange and ad exchange programs for you to join in order to promote your other programs or their program, but it’s always optional. Everything is geared toward helping you to build your downlines and promote your programs. Of course, Olson and Kinder didn’t create this program just to help other people make money; there are two upgraded paid membership levels through which they make their money as well.

Free Affiliate Funnel members can earn referral commissions when people they refer upgrade to paid memberships, but paid members get higher percentage commissions. Free members can promote one of their affiliate or networking marketing programs but paid silver members can promote three and paid gold members can promote six.

Affiliate Funnel provides training and a downloadable guide for all member levels. The training covers such topics as building your online business, traffic exchange techniques for better results, and email marketing.

Note:  If you're on IM Report Card because you're looking for a way to make money online, then you should check out our top recommendation.  It's the best method we've found that anyone can use to earn income online.  Click here to learn more!

Affiliate Funnel Reputation

Overall, Affiliate Funnel has a good reputation as one of the better advertising exchange programs, though most members note that it works best for network marketers. These types of programs are not for everyone, but for people who like to use traffic exchange or ad exchange programs, this one has proven to be popular.

Affiliate Funnel_Kolaetos AWESOME !

When I joined the Affiliate Funnel I discovered for myself that the process is very simple. I started filling my funnel with leads. All of this is not happening overnight but I know that with time my leads list will grow and then I can promote my offers directly to them. I am promoting some of my businesses in the funnel and I am getting good exposure for them. I can say that I am quite please with this business concept. In summary: the Affiliate Funnel business is Awesome !

A great resource for marketers

I joined Affiliate Funnel as a free member a couple months ago, and I have enjoyed it so far. I love being able to add my own programs so that other people that join after me and see my businesses. You can build HUGE downlines in traffic exchanges, list builders, etc. with Affiliate Funnel. Upgrading seems worth the price, as well.

It is okay

This program is very useful, I joined as a free member and it is not a bad experience. The program is not great but is not a scam. I agree that it is too time-consuming and the results are not brilliant. Anyway it is helpful if you want to learn more about the advertising online business. It is not complicated and every one can easily understand.

Affiliate Funnel

I think overall it is a good learning place about a lot of different subjects pertaining to Internet Marketing, using traffic exchanges and it is free information and informative about traffic exchanges and safelists. The seminars I thought were really insightful and have expert information.

My intentions were to learn about traffic exchanges so I could get more traffic to my website, which you get traffic but it is not like targeted traffic. Then I found out that traffic exchanges are more about list building more than getting traffic per se.

Through some stumbled upon research I found that the people who make the real money with traffic exchanges are the owners who want to get you signed up and promoting a business that they may have, sort of like the businesses that Affiliate Funnel has in their upgraded programs.

I also came to discover that just like article marketers, Blog marketers and pay per click marketers, you have traffic exchanges and safelist marketers and I think this is where a lot of the confusion lies is that people do not realize that and see traffic exchanges as a means of getting traffic to their sites; but it is more to the traffic exchanges philosophies than meets the eye and they have a targeted audience.

Traffic exchanges and safelist marketers have a targeted audience, the people who are looking to make money online. So just like the basics tells us to get us a list to promote to, if you are not doing niche marketing and you are looking to make money online then they'll love to work with you. They explain that the average traffic exchange user uses traffic exchanges anywhere from one to three months and mostly are new to the internet. They teach you this in the seminars and so forth. So why not sign you up on their list, you should be doing the same as they are doing and they tell you this.

I think this is one of the main reasons traffic exchanges get spoken of badly a lot of times, but you just have to understand your field and market right? Let me ask you this, we know you have to know what you are doing when you are doing pay per click marketing. Would you start out trying to do pay per click marketing or try to be a pay per click marketer without any knowledge of what you are doing? No of course not, then there is no need to do think of traffic exchanges any differently. We all have to pay for our education of something in one form or another, don't we all agree?

With that said, I think it is an awesome program for those who want to learn about Traffic exchanges and safelist marketing.

Confusing and Intimidating

I've been a member of Affiliate Funnel since 2007. I became Gold after about 6mo, I felt that I had a good handle on the program. I found that, although I was a member of some of the programs listed, most of my TE were not there. I'm sure that is different today as I see the Affiliate Funnel rating system on lots of sites. I went through the education steps, however some of the programs I was not willing to join.

Although I have my id's listed there, I am not active. I found it too time-consuming.

Very Useful If You Want To Get Started Advertising

Affiliate Funnel is a very helpful website if you are looking to learn more about advertising online and building a downline. Affiliate Funnel has all different kinds of tools for you to use as well as lessons on marketing and traffic exchanges. Affiliate Funnel also has a very active forum full of internet marketers who will always help you out if you have a question. Through Affiliate Funnel I have built my downline pretty easily thanks to the tips they have provided me. Probably the only downside to Affiliate Funnel is it is rather complicated if you don't know what you are doing. It can be quite overwhelming for many people. But all in all Affiliate Funnel is certainly something to check out.

Useful Information

I joined Affiliate Funnel as a free member hoping it would be a good way to help build my downline. I went through the website and spent hours adding my ids to the traffic exchanges and safelists that I belonged to and even joined more, thinking it would give me a better chance at signups. It only took a couple of minutes to add my own program to the list, since free members are allowed only 1 of their programs to be added. After promoting the site for awhile with no luck, I quit promoting it. I use it now just to keep up with traffic exchanges and safelists. I found that all the free information the site offers is great, so I'm still using it too, but as far as trying to build my downline, to me it was a waste of time. I recommend to anyone to try it before buying it just to make certain this is for you.

Wish I understood it better

I joined Affiliate Funnel at two different times. It's so heavily advertised, I guess I joined subliminally. The first time I was very new to marketing and was completely overwhelmed with the site, so I just forgot about it. A few months later, after I had a better grasp on marketing, I decided to sign up again, read everything thoroughly, and really give it a good try since it seemed to have so much positive feedback. I got really frustrated again because it wasn't nearly as easy as what was advertised. I also didn't like the fact that my link was being advertised with other links. How many people are actually clicking on those advertisements? I tried, didn't see any results, and probably won't try it again.

Decent, But Not For Me

I recommend this to anyone that is using traffic exchanges and no other methods. I found Affiliate Funnel to not only be very confusing, but very misguiding. I tried to promote the product and get more people to sign up under me, but I THEN realized that I would only get paid if they upgraded their memberships or something like that. Basically, I only got earnings if they came out of their pockets for something. I did take advantage of one seminar that I thought was very helpful. Overall, I don't recommend this site to anyone that uses a different method of promotion. It's too much to handle.

Affiliate Funnel had some good information

I joined Affiliate Funnel to see what they could offer. The only reason that I used them was to see which traffic exchanges were the best to use. I then signed up to traffic exchanges from their recommendations. I did not use Affiliate Funnel for anything else. I did try and promote their program, as I knew that I would only be paid if someone bought a membership. I did find some useful information on that site though.

Good if you use traffic exchanges

If you are using traffic exchanges, Affiliate Funnel is a really cool service. Affiliate funnel ranker reveals the highest converting traffic exchanges based on user feedback. This has been really helpful because there are lots of traffic exchanges that are waste of time.

Basically, if you want to know what traffic exchanges convert, you`ll see a complete listing that`s updated weekly.

Also, you only need to promote one link to get people to join multiple programs under meaning you`ll earn residual traffic as more and more people join under you. They also provide free weekly seminars that are pure gold. They offer lots of value with their seminars without selling a thing.

Not worth the time

I join Affiliate Funnel and have been a member for about two months. I have to say it's not worth the time and effort. While using this site I found that it was just as hard to advertise for this site as it was my affiliates. I didn't care much for all the traffic exchanges either. This site is suppose to make it easier to get referrals, but instead it just made it harder.

Not very impressed with this one

I signed up with Affiliate Funnel a while back and so far I haven't been that impressed with it all. The thing I like most about it is all of the free information I got after signing up as a free member. There were a lot of good suggestions that I have put to use on my own and they actually work. The site is also easy to use and the information they offer can be easily found at any time. I have also enjoyed my time on the forum as others are there to help when they can and also offer great ideas and tips.

What I don't like is that this site is almost impossible to promote. Everywhere I turned around, I saw the same site being promoted. It is way over promoted right now which allows me no chance to get any signups to this myself. So I would have to say, I would recommend joining this site as a free member only and get the information at least and talk to others. I, myself, have found no other use for this program at this time.

I will leave the decision up to you, but it has not worked for me. It is not a bad site, but I would say there are better ones out there that do the same thing. I rate this site a C at best.

Was not for me

I tried this program and found when it came to promote it that a lot of the traffic sites were cluttered with this program. I found it to be a difficult program to promote and hard to get any answers from their help system. I found with programs like this they are promoting traffic sites and sites that require you to up grade or pay to join.

An AWESOME downline builder

I love this site. Run by two of the coolest guys in the Traffic Exchange business, you really can't go wrong with anything Paul and Jon do, in my opinion.

My favorite part is the Downline Builder. In my opinion, Affiliate Funnel has the greatest selection of choices to add to your downline builder.

I love the built in affiliate program for Peel away ads, and the List Grenade. Those are awesome additions that work very well for me.

Mentors lack customer service

I was a member of Affiliate Funnel for many years, though not very active. Seems like there is a lot going on in the backpage, especially for a newbie. I did fill in all my ref codes, and tried to promote it, but I never got a single sign up under me. Seems like the traffic exchanges were saturated with many of their splash pages.

The final straw for me was attending one of their phone conferences. It was about list building. I figured since these are supposed to be experts in the field, I would learn a lot from attending their conferences.

The only thing I learned is that the mentors who run the conference are not very flexible at all. When they started talking about autoresponder services, I mentioned the one that I was using. I was instantly reprimanded (sort of) for using a service inferior to Aweber, even though they had never heard of the service I use.

They began speaking of deliverability rates, and I tried to tell them that the deliverability was great with this service {NPN), but they would hear nothing of it. Then they started talking about how reliable could it be, it hadn't been around for long. I told them that they have been around for five years, and they laughed at me.

In short, they made me feel very small when I attended that conference, which I don't understand how anyone can learn in an environment like that. I understand that it doesn't help them any to promote a service that isn't in their downline builder, but at the same time, it hurt their creditability with me to instantly shoot it down, even though they've had no experience with the service.

Marketers, Are You Ready For The Truth?

 
 
 
This program is useful in many ways

I joined Affiliate Funnel as a free member because of a recommendation from a sponsor to learn list-building and to use some of the recommended tools and advertising resources.

Like another commenter, I was not impressed that the traffic exchange results were determined by votes. But the information presented in the live trainings was really helpful for me to learn how to create and use splash pages, lead capture pages, and autoresponders. Now, I am much more successful in my promotions. I learned to promote myself. They taught me to brand myself and to build a list and then to form relationships with them by providing valuable info and recommendations.

For me, the best part about the program is the forum. All questions are answered promptly. I have made friends there as well.

Marketers can find valuable training, tools, and resources here. They can promote Affiliate Funnel to get people onto their lists. They can learn how to create their own opt in pages. Also, they can meet other people. I have found this program very useful in all of these ways.

Get over $250 in advertising and so much more at Ads and Cash

Not good, not bad

As soon as I found this site on IMRC, I thought to give it a try because nowadays I am looking for some effective ways to build more and more traffic to my blog. Well, after joining this site, I believe that it may be useful for those people who have been into this kind of business for a long time. In other words, I do not recommend beginners to invest in this site because there are a lot better opportunities out there that offer better services than this one. However, if you are interested, you can join it as a free member as you can get a lot of important tips and tricks which will help increase your traffic. So first, I recommend you to join it for free and afterwards, if you feel that this site is worth investing, then it's your own choice but I would not recommend you to do so.

Not very impressed

I joined this site a year ago hoping to build my downline. I did not expect it to be so hard. I advertised it every where and got no where. This site my help some people but it didn't help me. The one problem I have with the site is you still have to get referrals. In my experience with this site, my results were not good at all. I got more referrals from a safe list than this site.

This site is good if you can get a bunch of referrals and keep them active. But, other than that this site was just a big disappointment for me.

Another Awesome Service

The only thing that would have been nice to know before joining is that their traffic exchange rankings come from the votes of members. Even so, after joining I was pleasantly surprised to find all the helpful things offered even to free members.

I like how I can use the service to keep an eye on which traffic exchanges are in their top 20 list. I then compare their list with a couple others I use.

I'm not crazy about the fact that traffic exchange members themselves are the ones who vote on which ones rank the highest. The reason I don't like that aspect is because there's a real good chance that people will give high rankings just to bring in more people.

Overall, though, it's an awesome service and valuable resource.
